I thought I have seen it all. But the proof is in the photos. Maybe a Dingo got loose from a zoo.

The time stamp is not correct. These photos are from last night. Large animal about 5-6 feet long weight unknown. I set a large cage trap in the shrubs camouflaged and a collarum in the mulch bed. I will probably need to set some large coil springs in a few days. Not sure if it will go for the first set ups for sure.

A very common critter in STX. Probably a young coyote or fox with an extreme case of the mange!

If you catch a real chupacabra, you'll be as famous as the guy who catches the first real "long-tailed black panther." lol

No more visitations to the house so far after I put in the foot holds. Will have to wait and see for a week or so.

Once I set up the area with traps I only captured the animal once again on a trail cam video. It hasn't returned as of yet. I will go back to set up the job if it begins to frequent the home again.

I set up a scent post and he visited it quickly late one morning as I have it on a video clip. I had the trap set back for a coyote sized animal it turns out I believe it is a red fox once I was able to see it during the daylight hours. Had I set the trap closer to the post object a small stump I would have caught it quickly.
